Romeo & Juliet in Kannur. He is from KJP family and she from KPM(wink, wink!). And as the Bard said, it is ‘plague on both houses.’ #EEDA is a daring movie on an issue about we’re in denial. Star-crossed lovers, Shane Nigam &Nimisha lingering. Great start for 2018 movie-watching.

As #EedaPreview got over, the reactions I’m hearing range from sharp&brilliant depiction of Kannur’s blood-thirsty political violence to riveting movie-making. Along with #Kammattipadam, this is the best political movie of our times, said one. #Eeda
